Dallas Mavericks wing Courtney Lee takes on the challenge by reading to his daughter. See the hilarious video here plus more on Lee’s time with the Mavs.

The Dallas Mavericks acquired Courtney Lee as part of the Kristaps Porzingis trade with the New York Knicks in Jan. 2019. The veteran was out of the rotation for the Knicks but played in 22 of the final 29 games in Dallas last year.

Fans expected Lee to be an afterthought in the rotation this season, but he earned the start on opening night. Coach Rick Carlisle has used him as a situational defender.

Lee is in the final year of his contract. He may have played his last game with the Mavericks. The team cherishes his veteran presence and leadership, but he made $12.7 million this season. The 34-year-old will have to be willing to take a massive pay cut to stay in Dallas moving forward. He is an unrestricted free agent. Keep an eye on what offers Lee receives this offseason.

He can still be a productive rotation player. Lee has hit 44.7 percent of his 3-pointers this season. He is capable of creating his own shot and is a league-average perimeter defender. The 34-year-old should draw some offers on the open market.
